Friday, July 19th, 2013

We are excited to announce that we have new kids classes starting this term!

Do you have a child who would love to learn how to sew?

If YES then our new Kids Classes could be perfect!

   

Who is it for?

It’s ideal for kids between 8 years and 12 years old who would like to learn to sew and stitch and/or who already have an established desire for sewing, design and crafts.

WHAT YOUR Child WILL LEARN

  • How to thread and sew with a needle and thread
  • How to cut fabric and felt
  • How to stitch straight, blanket and back stitches
  • How to be creative and select their own fabrics & trims for their projects
  • How to sew basic straight stitch on a sewing machine
  • How finish their sewing projects ready to take home

WHAT THEY WILL MAKE

In our kids class term 3 the children will learn how to make a variety of cute sewing projects and learn great sewing skills. Projects such as cup cake pin cushions, draw string bag, fingerless gloves, dolls, dolls clothes and more!

Meet Lucy & Jake

WHAT MATERIALS WILL YOU NEED?

Everything is included in the course so you don’t have to worry about running around trying to collect all the requirements. Each child will receive their own kit to make their projects when they attend their sewing class.

BONUS – My Sewing BOOKLET!

Not only that they get to take home practice pieces and are given their very own learn to sew booklet. This booklet includes easy step by step instructions on their project and basic sewing. Therefore they can build upon it as they develop their sewing skills.
